not my original picture just my edit

For my fifty-sixth Evangelion book review, here is Evangelion Shin Gekijouban: Q E-conte Shuu (Evangelion New Theatrical Edition: Q Storyboards Collection), published by Groundworks.  This is a new book that just came out this week, and it is devoted to storyboards for the Evangelion: 3.0 movie.  (If you also want to see storyboards for the Evangelion: 1.0 and 2.0 movies, check out my fifty-fourth and fifty-fifth book reviews.  Or for storyboards from the original Evangelion TV series, take a look at my twenty-seventh review!)

This book is not available in English or French, but there are plenty of pictures.  It also has a removable dust jacket, however there isn’t any alternate cover art hidden underneath.  But that’s okay, because the book has plenty of interesting stuff inside, such as this lovely scene when Shinji sees Kaworu playing the piano:


The column on the left is for dialogue (or other sometimes other audio for the scene), the column in the middle is rough sketches of the visuals for the scene, and the column on the right has additional instructions such as camera directions.  However, as you can see above, sometimes the visuals are just too big to be contained in only one column… the topmost shot of Kaworu at the piano was so large that it extended into the left and right columns!

Keep reading for the rest of the book review, plus a few more pictures!

Regarding HEADLINER’s Fansite Rules

Because there has been a lot of confusion lately regarding HEADLINER’s rules in relation to editing of her videos, I sent a personal message to her through email (headliner_jk@daum.net) to get some clarification. In her reply, she confirmed that giffing of her fancams is okay, as long as you provide credit properly (with a source link), and don’t crop the logo. Screenshots and translations are provided below as proof.

the power of update

somehow it makes imagination flooding our brain like ZAAAAAAAA and don’t ask me what ZAAAAAAAAA means.

hc behind the scene regarding the latest official art. I imagined it was a photo shoot :D and that girl actually is holding a box of sunglasses. I was inspired by Big Bang’s footage behind one of their photo shoot.

hc mo “the bomber“ guanshan , regarding the majority of his appearance wearing bomber jacket, just because.

tbh my blog is literally filled with 19 days fan art… I should have considered making my own original comic strip. what do you think?

edit: I customized the coding so the picture appears bigger (about 1280 pixel on width?)

Please post pics of your new mixer attachments?

IT’S TIME FOR FOODBLOGGING PART TWO: THE PRODUCT REVIEW THAT GOES ON FOREVER AND MAKES YOU READ MY LIFE STORY BEFORE TELLING YOU WHETHER THE THING IS WORTH BUYING

(spoiler: maybe the ice cream maker, almost certainly not the juicer)

when last we left our heroes, i did not have a stand mixer, but then my dad bought me one and then very recently bought me some fancy attachments for… my brother’s birthday?? i don’t really know why, maybe he just likes buying kitchen shit but has run out of room in his own kitchen and is living vicariously through me. who knows, whatever.

i’m using this recipe for ice cream, and this kitchenaid ice cream attachment thing. at least i assume that’s the one, it’s the most popular one on amazon and that’s generally how my dad makes purchasing decisions. the new york times claimed to have the only ice cream recipe i would ever need, but it involved, like, cooking some egg yolks and milk in a saucepan and basically making a fancy fucking custard as step one, and that’s too many goddamn steps. all of the recipes that came with this fucking attachment were just as bad so fuck that, if this recipe is good enough for ben and/or jerry it’s good enough for me, i’ll save the fancy shit for when i’m in the mood to really hate myself. where was i.

don’t @ me about the imitation vanilla, i know i should be using real vanilla and not dollar store fake shit, i don’t care. this tiny corner of the counter used to be my designated tea corner but it’s kind of become overwhelmed by fifty million fucking appliances, but especially this goddamn stand mixer. it’s huge. it’s fucking monstrous. i’m really hoping we can get a table, or an island, or a buffet or something to keep this thing on once we get rid of the kitchen couch. don’t ask about the kitchen couch.

that picture is from last september, why the fuck have we had a kitchen couch for so long. anyway this recipe says to whisk together eggs and sugar until they’re fluffy but not firm, which i guess means whisk the shit out of it but don’t make a meringue? i don’t know what constitutes fluffy.

once i arbitrarily decided it was fluffy enough i dumped all the milk and cream and fake vanilla in there, but like, there ended up being just a bunch of egg yolk sorta stuck to the bottom of the bowl that i didn’t find until later when it was too late. this happens every goddamn time i use this fucking whisk and you’d think i’d learn but i do not. @kitchenaid why

here’s the real moment of truth, the ice cream maker. i’ve been keeping the bowl in the freezer since i got it and it takes up literally half of my dinky little freezer. they say to freeze it for a minimum of 15 hours but to keep it in the freezer all the time so you can make ice cream on a whim, but they sorely overestimate the size of my freezer or underestimate how much room i need for pizza rolls.

when i took this picture i had actually already started making it, but originally i was going to just… idk. ladle the mix into the ice cream bowl out of the big silver bowl. that was A TERRIBLE FUCKING IDEA, and ice cream mix got everywhere, and i don’t have any pictures of that because it turned out you could see my reflection in the silver bowl and i’m not wearing pants. i haven’t been wearing pants this whole time. wait, does that picture from earlier have my reflection in it? shit. it fucking does. i’m going to edit that with a sticker or something but only people who’ve made it this far into the post will know why that’s there. there’s going to be a cut here but to people on mobile it will just look like the post ends and for that i apologize (or maybe… you’re welcome???)

Cinema Industry worst habit is still going strong : Whitewashing

Guess to whom it benefits ?

Is it really surprising to see that even the most-influential indian stars have been associated with fairness products ?

Many of indian actresses skin color has changed over the years, no need to name them… So if even a successful and beautiful actress doesn’t have confidence about her skin color what do you expect? Of course we are in an industry where some talentless people are given the best work just because they “look white”…

We’re in the 21st century. Light skin is not the only way to look beautiful.

dj-bayeux-tapestry  asked:

I'm gonna go broad: what's your single favorite JRPG?

Okay. I’m going to impose a couple of constraints to narrow the field:

1. It has to be an English localisation of a game by a Japanese developer. No “JRPG style” games from Western developers, no licensed spin-offs developed by American studios, no titles that are only available in Japan.

2. It has to be available for the PC via legitimate channels. No console exclusives, no third-party emulators, no fan-translated romhacks.

Those two requirements in mind, I’d have to give it to Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky. The worldbuilding is fantastic, the combat mechanics are exactly the right kind of crunchy, and the English localisation is hands down one of the best I’ve ever seen - the characters actually talk like real people, and even most of the jokes and wordplay manage to come across in a natural-sounding way. It’s just a really impressive piece of work.

(Close runners-up in no particular order include Final Fantasy X-2, Fortune Summoners, Helen’s Mysterious Castle, Recettear and Ys Origin. A couple of those are 75% off right now if you’re looking to start a collection.)

EDIT: And while I know you meant my favourite video-game-type JRPG, I’m going to throw in my favourite tabletop JRPG just for the heck of it: Ryuutama. Picture Oregon Trail as interpreted by Studio Ghibli. It’s very cute!

i have decided to jump on the bandwagon and do a tumblr awards for y’all!

@sims-influence asked how I took this picture above and if it was an ingame manipulation. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. I wish we could do such camera movements ingame *sigh* So, in my case it’s just a photoshop manipulation. My reply turned out to be a mini-tutorial. I tried to explain everything as much easier as possible for such Photoshop beginners as me :D Mini-tutorial is under the cut:

Please

Don’t remove the written portion of my art posts for any reason.

You’re welcome to respond to them and disagree with them in any way you want! But I consider the text portion to be as much a part of the post as the pictures. It’s hiding the text from everyone else who views the work off your blog, and everyone who then reblogs the textless version.  

Thank you and extra brownie points to everyone who’s asked me first before making edits to my work. Whether it’s a major or minor change to the original, I feel really appreciated as the creator when you ask and I usually say yes to everyone.

anonymous asked:

I know this will sound kinda weird but how do you do your sims noses? They look so perfect and smooth. Im really bad at fitting the nose to the face. I hope you understand this and so sorry for my english! 😭

honestly, most of my edits (if not all of them!) use major liquifying

example:

left is unedited & right is edited. (those aren’t the same picture, i just don’t have the original unedited picture of the left one)

i think it’s all in the editing really, i don’t think sims can look “smooth” because of the game’s graphics themselves so you just have to work some magic in photoshop to fix it!! as for fitting it into the face I have to say heighten their mouths, it works great & doesn’t make them look like they have a squidward nose.
